By Michael Stewart email@example.com Fort Walton Beach-based New Speed Construction, Inc. owner Gail Speed drove to Crestview Wednesday in search of a job. Speed was among 765 people who attended the North Okaloosa County Job Fair and Military Expo at the Crestview Community Center. Work is a little slow right now, said Speed, whose company specializes in concrete construction work. Actually, its very, very slow. If I can get my foot in the door somewhere and get a full-time job and then run the company on the side, that would be great. While Okaloosa Countys June unemployment rate of 7.4 percent was among the lowest in the state and well below the national average of 9.1 percent, there are still many people in the county out of work, event organizers said. Julys unemployment gures were released Friday after the News Bulletin deadline. Statewide, Floridas unemployment rate for June was 10.6 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. The 7.4 percent unemployment rate in Okaloosa County does not include underemployed residents working at jobs below their skill and pay levels, those working part-time or people who have quit looking for work. Those who are unemployed now have been unemployed for longer than what we have experienced in the past, said Mary Lou Reed, executive director of the Okaloosa and Walton counties Workforce Development Board. 36th Year Number 67 8 Pages 1 Section Phone: 850-682-6524 Website: crestviewbulletin.com Fax: 850-682-2246 F L O R I D A P R E S S A S S O C I A T I O N 1998 A ward W inning Newspaper Florida Pr ess Association Better W eekly Newspaper Contest WHATS HAPPENING .............

Andrew Schneider, public information ofcer for the Crestview Police Depart ment, said residents need to keep safety in mind as they readjust to the school rou tine. Within a one-mile radius of a school, youve got kids that walk from home and not always on a sidewalk. (There are) bike riders, skateboarders, drivers and buses and its morning and everybody has to be some where at a certain time. It can be a mixture that causes trouble. Speeders in school zones are looking at double the ne and their car in surance rates go up or are canceled, Schneider said. People have to get back in the routine of slowing down for the school zones in the mornings and afternoons. Parents also need to re mind their children about pedestrian and bicycle safe ty, he cautioned. Always cross the road at a crosswalk; use the cross walk lights or walk across with a crossing guard when one is available, Schneider said.

Nationally, more seniors are returning to the workforce, many of whose retirement investments took a hit during the recession. While McDaniel cant pinpoint the cause, he did say he has seen more older veterans seeking employment in Okaloosa County than in the past. But it isnt just older workers facing a tough job market in the fragile economy. Crestview resident Laura Ott, 22, was among the applicants at the job fair. Ott, who graduates soon from the University of West Florida with a bachelors degree in history, has been working at Subway for the past three years. Although she likes her job at Subway and said it provides the exible schedule she needs to attend college, Ott said she is ready to move up. She found several openings at the job fair that were interesting. Its kind of unfortunate because more of the advanced ones that would provide really great career opportunities also require a lot of experience, Ott said, adding that peers in her age group arent optimistic. We are really, really scared we are going to end up working at jobs like Subway for the next 10 years and be stuck there because those would be the only job available, Ott said. Although Okaloosa Countys unemployment rose .4 percent from May to June, Landrum Stafng Business Development Specialist Julie Orr said she has seen an increase in employers in the county seeking temporary and fulltime help. It has denitely increased since last fall, Orr said of local hires through her company. A lot of employers did start out hiring temporary employees just to be conservative. They found they had squeezed as much as they possibly could out of the employees they kept and just needed to hire on some temps so they could stop turning away business. Karla Mitchell, with Crestview-based All Florida Fence & Deck, Inc., manned a booth at the job fair and was looking to hire four installers/laborers and a sales representative. Mitchell said her company has seen a signicant increase in business the last three months, primarily in fence construction. She credits the relocation of members of the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) from Fort Bragg in North Carolina to their new compound on Eglin Air Force Base reservation lands south of Crestview. A lot of them are buying houses or having new houses built and they need a fence, Mitchell said. While job fair organizers were targeting inner city residents living in Crestviews enterprise zone for employment, the event was also a means to connect spouses of members of the 7th Special Forces with employers. In addition to prospective employers, 35 agencies and businesses, such as the Okaloosa and Walton county school districts, medical facilities and credit unions had booths set up to assist incoming military families. And while some members of the 7th Special Forces and their spouses were present, many more were job seekers like Speed, who said she hasnt let the debate over the nations debt and the bleak economy distract her from her job search. You just have to go out there and keep hustling and bustling until you get something, Speed said. JOB FAIR from page A1 Ohio, Utah and Belgium. At least eight of the kids were from 7th Special Forces families. On Monday morning, Crestview High Schools Student-to-Student (S2S) organization hosted a simi lar program, drawing at least 40 students. Through out north Okaloosa County, area schools have been welcoming new students of service personnel. Antioch Elementary School Principal Wanda Avery said in addition to 7th Special Forces families, we have also seen the relo cation of several Air Force students come in. Antioch has always been heavy with military families. We have a staff thats welcoming and supportive. The S2S and JS2S pro grams were sponsored by the Military Child Educa tion Coalition, a non-prot organization working to ensure a quality education for all military children af fected by mobility, family separation, and transition, according to its website. Sometimes when youre the new kid on the block, you feel a little isolated, Shoal River social studies teacher Haley Carroway, one of the JS2S advisers and a mili tary spouse herself, told the newcomers. We are here to help you guys to have a buddy. I talked to a couple par ents and they were very pleased their child was getting to meet some class mates before school started and not be totally lost on the rst day of school, CHS Principal Bob Jones said. The important part is letting them know theres someone here who cares. Because these kids move so much, its very tough for them. It is a great program, district Superintendent of Schools Alexis Tibbetts said. Meeting friends in the summer (helps), so when you walk into that class room, if there is even one or two faces that you know, that is such a great feeling for our new students and we want to give them that opportunity. Ten Shoal River sev enth and eighth grade JS2S members volunteered to serve as ambassadors to welcome their peers to the school, show them around, and provide a friendly, knowledgeable buddy. I hope to make them feel welcome here at Shoal River, eighth grader Alik Whited, one of the JS2S am bassadors, said. I want to help them nd their way around the school, eighth grader Car son Martello added. Carroway and math teacher Holly Tew, another JS2S adviser, took the 18 new Mustangs and their ambassadors to the lunch room for a get-to-know-you game. During the walk, Car roway, who has done her share of military moves, sympathized with one stu dent whose family had just arrived from Fort Bragg, N.C., and was still unpacking. You gotta act like its Christmas, Carroway ad vised the boy. When you open a box, pretend like its a present. During the game of I Have Never, as each stu dent announced something he or she had never done, all the kids who had done it themselves had to swap seats. When Zack Stem ske, an Air Force son who recently transferred from Utah, announced, Im Zack and I have never been over seas, the room erupted in pandemonium. For many, living overseas was merely part of growing up in a mili tary family. For some of these kids, making the move is a re ally big thing, Carroway explained. Change is hard, but sometimes change is good. Fortunately, especially for students like the quiet kid who declared during the game, I have never been cool, there are peer am bassadors like Alik, Carson and their schoolmates will ing to befriend and assist newcomers as they begin at a new school in a new town. In Okaloosa County, were very supportive of military families, Jones said. Some of the families have been telling us that theyve never seen a school system that embraces military families like we do. Were proud to do it. added backpack. He also suggests that par ents buy bike padlocks for the bike racks at the school. Padlocks with combinations or keys are cheap compared to the cost of a bicycle and it is the unlocked bike that is targeted by thieves. Schneider warned that bus drivers have blind spots just like semi-truck drivers. If you cant see their mirror, they cant see you, Schneider said. So you have to use caution in lane chang ing and in the frequent stops that the school bus makes as kids get on or off. Cpl. Greg Porch from the Okaloosa County Sheriffs Ofce is the school resource ofcer for Crestview High School. He said the one complaint he gets about high school students who drive is the hurry they are always in. The number one com plaint we hear is that a driver sees the bus yellow lights ashing and they try to beat their red stop lights and sign, Porch said. The lights mean prepare to stop, not speed up and go past. Tailgating and cutting the bus off in trafc follow close ly in complaints. Porch said that more than 750 student car stick ers are registered at CHS and that distracted divers are a major concern. For those arriving at the high school from military re assignments, the front of the school will remind them of primetime at the front gate for a military installation, Porch said. The buses are pulling in, faculty and stu dents are parking, parents are dropping students off, everyone is talking, and it is very chaotic. Then in the afternoon, students cant wait to get in the car and check their voicemail, their text, their Facebook, their Tweets, or call the people that they just spent the day with or are about to spend the day with. They have to communicate and that takes their mind off their driving. Motorists need to be ex tra vigilant, he warned. There are children wait ing at the bus stops and they horseplay, Porch said. You have to watch for them. Ive seen them step off the curbs or get pushed off the curbs. MICHAEL STEWART | The News Bulletin Applicants lined up outside the Crestview Community Center Wednesday waiting for a job fair to begin. SAFETY from page A1 NEWCOMERS from page A1
Local A4 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, August 20, 2011 By Brian Hughes email@example.com A Crestview Boy Scout who saved his choking grandmother by using the Heimlich maneuver he had just learned in his Cub Scout pack was recognized at his current troops Court of Honor Monday evening. Troop 773, chartered by the Crestview Knights of Columbus, met for the solemn event, during which many of the boys advanced in rank, received special awards, and were awarded merit badges for attaining new skills. The star of the evening, however, was Germainye Hudson. Earlier this year, as an 11-year-old Senior Webelos in Cub Scout Pack 530, Germainye completed the Readyman Activity Class, a training program for Cub Scouts who have advanced to the Webelos level. The class teaches basic first aid and safety skills, explained Assistant Scout Master Kelley Carrico, Germainyes den leader at the time. While watching the Super Bowl, Germainyes grandmother, Bernadette Hudson, began choking on some food. Her grandson calmly applied the skills he had recently learned, performing the Heimlich maneuver twice to dislodge the food stuck in Hudsons throat, then comforting her until she recovered. For his quick thinking, the boy was awarded the Cub Scout Achievement Medal at his packs Feb. 26 Blue and Gold banquet. In April, Germainye held his crossover ceremony, in which he graduated to Boy Scouts. At the recent Court of Honor, he received the Boy Scout National Medal of Merit. Its an award for boys who go above and beyond what is normally expected of a scout, Carrico explained as Troop Master Dan Behr pinned the medal on Germainyes chest. On behalf of her family, Bernadette Hudson in turn presented Carrico with a plaque of appreciation for his dedication to teaching his scouts life-saving skills. It takes a village, they say, to raise a child, and I want to thank all of you for being part of that village, Hudson said to the Boy Scouts and their adult leaders. During the Court of Honor, 29 boys advanced in rank, including Germainye, who attained his Scout badge, the first step in the seven ranks of Boy Scouting. Many boys received merit badges and awards for skills demonstrated at the summer camporee at Camp Davy Crockett in Whitesburg, Tenn., including Jonathan Glisson and Matthew Roberts, who were among only six of the more than 500 scouts at the camporee who successfully completed the mile-long swim. Among the nearly three-dozen boys attending the event were four Eagle Scouts, the organizations highest rank, attained by only 2 percent of all scouts. Among them was Kody Lusk, Crestview and Troop 773s newest Eagle, who had his Eagle Court of Honor Aug. 6. 4521458 Sunshine Corner DAYCARE Grand Opening!

By Brooke Saari Special to The News Bulletin Eastern oysters, a popular bivalve mollusk, are not just a tasty treat that many enjoy yearly; they are also a staple to the health and wellness of our bay. These organisms are hearty and tolerant with the ability to live in a range a brackish (fresh and saltwater combined) to salty environments. Oysters spend part of their life cycle as plankton, which means they float through the water and cannot swim (or swim weakly). There are many types of plants and animals that spend part or all of their lives as plankton, which provide food for many animals and are the basis of the food chain. After this point they complete their life cycles and attach to hard substrate areas, such as old reefs. Oysters are considered keystone species because of the variety of functions they provide for the bays and estuaries they inhabit. They are considered biofilters due to their ability to filter up to 50 gallons of water per day. They help to control algal blooms, lower the amount of suspended sediment, silt and nutrients, and improve the water quality/clarity. These species also provide critical food and habitat by creating solid three-dimensional structures, referred to as reefs, which are typically made of older oyster shells. These reefs provide natural habitats to fish, crustaceans, marine worms and many other animals. These areas also provide protection to the shoreline by breaking the waves and lessening the impact of erosion. As this brief introduction has proved, oysters are very interesting animals. They are important species to the health of our beloved bay and are a nutritious yummy snack. Worldwide, including Choctawhatchee Bay, oysters and their habitats have declined in population. There are many opportunities to participate in volunteer projects to build oyster reefs in our local area and to learn more information about oysters in general. Consult advisories and health information before consuming oysters. For more information on marine science and natural resources, email Brooke Saari at bsaari@ ufl.edu or call her at 689-5850.

Meetings are held once a month. For exact meeting location and more information please call Alice (934-4403) or Betsy (678-1926), or send an email to strictlyweavers@yahoo. com. Anyone interested in the art of weaving handwoven fabric is invited to attend. By Paula Kelley paulak@crestviewbulletin. com U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, RChumuckla, spoke at the Crestview Kiwanis Club Wednesday and warned of the nations ballooning debt. The first credit downgrade in the history of our country should be a wake-up call to Washington that immediate action should be taken to put our fiscal house in order, Miller said. Republicans have had a sense of urgency about the debt crisis, and the credit downgrade is an indication of things to come if we dont all have the same feelings. Miller said the way to balance the nations budget is to reduce spending. The congressman said that at a recent town hall meeting in Pensacola, constituents said that federal spending is out of control. Miller said he counts himself among conservatives who want an alternative budget plan that would cut trillions of dollars in spending and balance the budget over a number of years. The debate in Washington has now become, How much do we cut? And a conference committee has been set up to answer that, he said. The committee, half Republican and half Democrat, is tasked with finding $1.2 trillion dollars in reductions. Should the committee fail to do their job, sequestration will kick in, Miller said. It will be a quick fight as they plan to be done by Thanksgiving. When Social Security was set up, it was set up to supplement retirement, not serve as retirement as it does for so many today, Miller said. We will have to look at reform for persons under age 55. Spending cuts and a balanced budget amendment are better than thinking about the percent cuts that would occur within existing benefits and programs. Miller talked about the wisdom of a balanced budget. A business has to take on debt to grow, but the government does not need debt to grow. The stimulus money did not include enough real projects to stimulate the economy. We can go all the way back to the writings of Thomas Jefferson who said that debt for the government was not good.

A6 | Crestview News Bulletin Saturday, August 20, 2011 6512980 Real Estate Protecting your home during summer storm season Special to the News Bulletin Summer brings warm weath er, sunshine and balmy breezes. It also brings sudden, sometimes violent, storms that can leave hom e owners wondering what hit them. The owners of Servpro franchises in the Crestview area say homeowners need to employ a two-pronged strategy to mini mize the potential for property damage and injury from summer storms. First, take steps in advance of a summer storm strike, and second, repair property dam age promptly before the next storm hits. Summer storm damage can range from wet basements to a devastating ood and from downed tree limbs to a tree falling on your home, said Rick Isaa cson, executive vice president of Servpro Industries Inc. No one can predict or protect them selves and their home from all the dangers of summer storms, but hom e owners can take steps to help minimize the damage, and remediation specialists like the franchise professionals at Servpro can help clean up and restore your home when damage does occur. Isaacson said that keeping your roof in good repair, trim ming trees near the house and making certain that windows and doors are watertight and close securely are steps all homeown ers should take to lessen summer storm damage. For homeowners in areas threatened by frequent severe thunderstorms, lightning protection systems, a network of cabling installed on the roof, may help prevent devastating res re sulting from a lightning strike. And homeowners in hurri cane-prone locales might want to consider installing braces on garage doors, storm shutters on windows and deadbolts on doors to keep the wind out of the home. The positive pressure of wind in the home, combined with the neg ative pull of wind swirling above the home, can cause the roof to y off. In the aftermath of a summer storm, Isaacson recommended, homeowners should make a quick inspection of their property by checking these areas: The roof: Conduct an inspec tion from the ground to look for missing or loose shingles, espe cially around vent pipes, chim neys, etc. Then move your in spection indoors, to the attic, and check for signs of water damage. Replace ashing if light shines through around vent pipes or the chimney. Leave roof repairs and on-the-roof inspections to the pro fessionals. Gutters: The leaves and other debris deposited into your gutters by a summer storm can prevent them from carrying water away from your roof, leading to water in your basement or living spaces. Its time to make immediate re pairs if your gutter is hanging off the roof, leaking from the seams, overowing during a rainstorm or missing, or if a downspout is disconnected from the gutter or the house. Some gutter problems are do-it-yourself projects; others require expert help, so be honest with yourself about your capabili ties. Deck: A severe storm can leave your deck damaged and un safe, so its important to check for damaged boards, loose fasteners, protruding nails and splinters on handrails and steps. Routine maintenance can repair most problems, but structural damage might make deck replacement necessary. When summer storms leave devastating damage in their wake from ooding, re and wind, Servpro franchise profession als are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to begin the cleanup process immediately, before additional damage and health risks can develop. Crest view-area remediation profes sionals at Servpro guide home owners through the initial steps of cleanup and then profession ally and thoroughly clean and restore homes and their furnish ings to make it like it never even happened. Servpro franchise profession als in the Crestview area special ize in disaster restoration, clean up and repair services, helping to remediate re or water damage for commercial and residential customers. Servpro also offers mold remediation, carpet and upholstery cleaning and other home-maintenance and restora tion services. For more information about the companys services, also available in Crestview, contact Steven Anderson at 939-4700 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Jeff Jones at 863-2552 or JJones SP5866@aol.com.

Look for the green and white Emerald Coast Open House signs throughout the Emerald Coast to know which homes are participating. For general information about ECAR, check out www.Emerald CoastRealtors.com. Designate a water watcher Special to the News Bulletin With pool time already here, the Florida Department of Health (DOH) asks Floridians and visitors to save a life and designate a water watcher when children are participating in water activities. Water watchers can wear a water watcher designation tag as a remind er to responsible individuals that they are present to monitor children in or around water. Throughout the late 1980s and late 1990s, Okaloosa County had an aver age of zero to one drowning deaths for children between the ages of 1 and 4. For the past decade, with an in creasing number of residential pools in the county, Okaloosa has averaged two to three drownings per year for this age group. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for Oka loosas 1to 4-year-olds, and the sec ond-leading cause of unintentional injury death for infants (less than one year), and children ages 5-9. In Florida, we lose four class rooms of pre-k children every year to drowning, said Lisa VanderwerfHourigan, director of the DOH Ofce of Injury Prevention. Three layers of pool safety will help keep children who are swim ming safe year-round: Layer 1, supervision: Children should never be allowed in the pool area without an adult responsible for su pervision. Supervision is the most critical layer of protection. Designate a water watcher (download a water watcher tag from http://waterproof. com), so you know who is in charge of watching children in pool. Layer 2, barriers: A barrier is an ob ject or device that physically blocks children from entering the pool area. DOH recommends using a number of different barriers to ensure safety: for your home, child-proof locks and door alarms on all doors that open to the outside; and for the pool area, a fence with a self-closing and self-latching gate, and gate and pool alarms. The Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act (Chapter 515, Florida Statutes) requires at least one physical barrier for pools built after 2000. More than 90 percent of Floridas home swim ming pools were built before the law. Layer 3, emergency preparedness: Always be prepared for an emergency. Learn life-saving skills, know proper emer gency procedures, and keep a phone near the pool in case you need to call 911. Many organizations offer CPR and rescue-technique classes at little or no cost. Finally, ask your health care provider about age-appropriate swimming lessons in your area. Prevention tips Install four-sided isolation fenc ing with a self-closing and self-latch ing gate around pools and spas. Install alarms on all doors and windows leading to the pool. Learn to swim, and never swim alone or while under the inuence of drugs or alcohol. Always wear a U.S. Coast Guardapproved personal otation device while participating in open water sports and recreation. Operate watercraft safely and legally. Never dive into water less than nine feet deep. If you dont know the depth of the water, do not dive. Learn CPR.

SP O RT S www.crestviewbulletin.com Section By Randy Dickson firstname.lastname@example.org Every indication is the Crest view football teams week at Camp Blanding near Starke was an undeniable success. First, the Bulldogs came away from the camp with Dakota Dean having solidied his spot as the No. 1 quarterback. But more importantly, the Dawgs came to gether as a team. They were something else, Bulldog coach Kevin Pettis said Monday afternoon. They re sponded well. We took them to a bunch of different things. We did a bunch of stuff foot ball-wise and non football-wise. They shocked me and surprised me at how well they did. They did a good job. Pettis said he enjoyed getting to know the players in a different setting than is the norm in Crest view. Its the rst time you get a chance to really know them when you take them to camp, he said. They are a funny bunch of young uns. I can tell you that. Pettis said he was happy with where the team was heading into the second week of practice. But, as is the case with most teams early in the preseason, he said there were still some things to be ironed out. Dean offered a players per spective of the camp, which in cluded getting up at 4:30 a.m. (3:30 CDT) for a 5 a.m. practice and having the day stretch until midnight. Pettis described the players as looking like the zombies in the old Michael Jackson music video Thriller the rst morning of practice. I think the rst couple of days they wanted to (leave), and if they had been closer they would have, Pettis said. It was so far away they couldnt walk. And momma and daddy werent coming all the way to Jacksonville (to take them home). Dean said the days were long, but the end results were worth it. It was probably one of the mentally toughest things I did in my life, he said. It was insane. It brought us so much clos er to our teammates. We came there with some guys not being on the line fully, but if I had to go to war with any of these guys, I know they would have my back 100 percent. Dean said the toughest part of the camp was the endurance work the players had to do. The Steeler Mile was the worst thing as the players had to run what Dean said was more like a mile-and-a-half in a certain amount of time. If the players didnt complete the run in time, they had to do it again. One day they ran seven Steel er Miles. Pettis said the camp was more about team than football. They gured out you cant get through it (without your teammates). Momma cant help you; daddy cant help you; broth er cant help you, he said. The only person that can help you is that guy in the bunk beside you. Youve got to lean on each other to get through because it is that tough. Pettis said the Bulldogs left camp with some work to do in terms of football, but from a team perspective he thinks they have made the grade. Football-wise, Id give it a B, he said. Team-wise it was an A plus, plus, plus, plus. I mean, football is a very small part of what we do there.

Several schools from the Southeastern Conference tried to entice the Crestview junior shortstop to join their program, as did several Atlantic Coast Conference schools. If Dean had wanted, he could have stayed in state and made the two-hour trip to Tallahassee and Florida State, or the four-hour trip to Gainesville and the University of Florida. Instead he decided to keep it in the family. Late last month, Dean made the decision to follow in the footsteps of his older broth er, Blake Dean, a 2006 Crestview grad, and commit to Louisiana State University. Dakota said his brothers LSU experience weighed heavily in his decision to choose the Tigers. It had a big impact, Dakota said. Going to all those games (when Blake was there) and see ing how they were; they were the top team in the country (winning their sixth national champion ship in 2009), and that had a big impact. Their tradition and the play ers, there is nothing like them. And they added a whole new fa cility too. Its state of the art. Bulldog baseball coach Tim Gillis wasnt surprised by Dako tas decision. He kind of grew up at LSU with his brother and watching his brother, Gillis said. He saw what the recruiting process is like. He had some offers from some other big time D1 schools. For him to land at LSU is be cause he had some LSU blood in him. Im proud for him. Im proud for the family. Dakota said the relationships he already has with LSU head coach Paul Mainieri and hitting coach Javi Sanchez also played a part in his decision to play for the Tigers. Dakota said the LSU coach es are projecting him to stay a middle inelder playing either shortstop or second base, but he doesnt care where he plays as long as he gets a chance to start. If it came down to starting, Id love playing centereld, he said. Dakota has grown used to the comparisons to Blake, who ranks among the best hitters in LSU history. I know they are going to com pare me, but hes Blake and Im Dakota, he said. Gillis thinks Dakota will only get better. First of all hes a erce competitor, Gillis said. Hes got every skill you are looking for. Hes got a great arm. He can run. Hes got power, plus he can hit for av erage. Hes the complete pack age, and I think hes only go ing to get better. I think hes going to do great things there. Dakota, who also is the start ing quarterback on the Bull dog football team and could be recruited to play football too, wasnt so sure if he would give up baseball for the gridiron. But he did say the LSU foot ball team was talking to him too, so that might be a possibility. And how did Blake react when Da kota told him he was headed to LSU? He said, Congratulations. You made the right choice, Da kota said. FILE PHOTO Crestview shortstop Dakota Dean drives a pitch during the Home Run Derby on July 1. Dean has committed to play baseball at Louisiana State.
